NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)Mercedes-Benz is recalling close to 1.3 million vehicles over a problem with their emergency call system.

The company says a glitch in its eCall software could send first responders to the wrong location after an accident.

The recall covers more than a dozen models made between 2016 and 2021.

Mercedes says it will notify owners affected by the issue and upgrade the software for free.

The company is expected to begin the recall on April 6.
